Mr. Zabriskie is renowned as a 3-time Emmy Award winning broadcast sports announcer with a career spanning more than 30 years. He initially pursued an education at the University of Houston on a football scholarship, but injuries quickly forced him to retire.

Notably, Mr. Zabriskie considers the highlight of his career to be the Mets winning of the 1986 World Series. He served as Mets television play-by-play announcer from 1983 through 1989.

Mr. Zabriskie later excelled as a freelance sports commentator in the Los Angeles market in 1974 and 1975.

In 1976, Mr. Zabriskie accepted the position of an announcer for Station WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh. He later found success with ABC-TV Sports in New York City, where he would remain active until 1997. Moreover, Mr. Zabriskie has worked as a play-by-play announcer for outlets including CBS Sports, ESPN from 1990 to 1993, The Baseball Network in 1994 and 1995, and the play-by-play announcer for the Boston Red Sox during their 1996 and 1997 seasons.
